Artist: Kimmerjae Johnson
Location: 600 S. Public Road
Materials: Welded Steel
Size: 8' x 4' x 7'
Artists Statement: For me making art is a conversation with Universe, stepping through the illusion of familiarity with this amazing world. 'Cowboy' is one of a pair called 'Frontier', in which the tone of the conversation is very lighthearted. A familiar caricature lends its form to exploration of the great freedom and lyrical quality that a rod of common steel can trace in space.
In Cowboy, maybe also we can enjoy our stereotype while (literally!) seeing through to bigger gestures of Spirit.
Thanks to Guido Denzler at Mobile Metalworks in Lafayette for helping me talk the steel into its full stature for Art on the Street!
